“The Marshall” reports
Imagine an Opening Night where the actors fall off the stage and are concussed, their understudies are all cut down by a virulent strain of influenza, and the rest of the cast have not read the script… this is something like the Wash performance against London Theatres at North Midds on Sunday.
Only three Wash batters managed to flicker in the limelight – Nisar Sheikh cameoed with a breezy top score of 19; Nick Kripps bashed 18; and Stuart Marsh glided to a beautiful 16. The Thespians got the 100 runs required without breaking a sweat, and the teams then repaired to the Pav for a strangely delayed tea – the Wash men assuming that a booked pitch came with a booked tea, & the opposite being the case. What a shemozzle!
